HE IS SURPRISED
AT ODELL'S GROWTH
!y Roewoll Shelley.
Odell, Kast Hood River Valley, Aug.
2. L. N. Blowers and family and Sam
I'.lowere and family passed Odell last
Sunday morning on their way to the
bridge ou the Mount Hood road Ke
turning in the evening, they lunched at
the Little White Htore park. Although
w arm and duBty, they enjoyed the day's
outing. In speaking of the develop
ments of this eection, L. N. was eur
prised at the improvements here, and
ventured the prophecy that Odell would
foon develop Into a respectable village.
The advent of the railroad will hasten
this result, for then it will not be necei
sary to haul the ranch products to town,
and the apples and othur products from
this and the Mount Hood section will be
shipped from Odell. This accomplished,
the mercbanlse stocks will be increased,
for whenever there is a demand the sup
ply soon follows.
James Kggart, his father and Frank
K. Huncorn went to snow-capped Mount
J lood last week. Mr. Huncorn climbed
to the summit, while some of the party
looked at the mountain top from a point
eighteen feet below.
Recently there have been some able
ministers at the Union church here. For
a week past Rev. II. W. Jones, who was
formerly pastor of large church at
Buffalo, N. Y,, has been conducting
meetings. Mr. Jones is an earnest,
forcefulspeaker. With choice language
coming from the heart, he holds the au
dience. Quite au interest is manifest
and a number of persons have respond
ed to his call and Bignilied their inten
tion of leading a higher and better life.
Mont people, 1 think, desire such a life,
yet for reasons which do not reflect upon
the efforts of the most consecrated niln
inter of the gospel, they listen to the
most touching appeals from the pulpit
orator, still failing to respond. And
why? Most of us who are in the shadow
of the evening of life have had lessons
burned Into our hearts with letters of
fire, until we are compelled to think and
act our real selves. Intelligence and
reason make demands upon tin that we
cannot, try hard as we may, discard
Hence a certain class of people are con
stantly misunderstood and cons I'tieiitly
misjudged by those conducting evangel
istic work. And sad as it limy appenr
toothers, there are many persons in thin
world, who in mature years, are forced
to change the convictions that youthful
environments had made, and perhaps in
so doing they get upon a broader anil
higher plane of life, rather than being
in a lost condition. We are always glad
to note and commend any gxd work of
this kind, for we realize that the rise
and fall of nations depend upon their
moral standard, Cities and government)
builded with blood money cannot Ion
endure; yet remembering this, it is well
not to forget that you "cannot gather

Tho music of tho hunter, his horn and
his hound is a precious rnlio of the
primitive Western days and Is sweeter
music to the writer than "Lilwratti'i

old pioneer of the days of long ago,
when he watched by night for thi
deer to come into the lick, or took
iiis stand by duy with his ear tunocl
to the first fresh sound of the hound
on the hot trail, and as the souud

Mrs. Crockett left last Monday night

a view of the entire valley may be ob

shaded by tho tallest tir trees, making
an ideal place to camp ami rest.
A party, among whom were Frank
Stanton, M. M. Hill and W. Fiko,

APPLE CROP GOOD
IN MOSIER VALLEY
By a Staff Correspondent.
Mosler, Or., Aug. 2. There never
before has been so much activity In a
buildings way in this city since its
inception. The people of Moiser have
awakened to their own importance
and while ti e country in and around
the city U ins', ly till i Eg up. the town
is experiencing a fine growth.
There are none who have made a
oa refill study of the soil condition in
the vicinity of Moeier but what will
say that it is splendidy adapted for
the growing of fruit. The settlement
was made here in an early day, and
there are still families or remnants of
families who were the early settlers.
There ia no prettier or more fertile
valley than where grows the. big apples
and the line berries. The ranchers who
have bad tho nerve and grit to stick
to it are today reaping the rewards.
While the apple crop this year will be
a light one iu the great fruit growing
valleys and in many cases only about
a fourth of a crop, the yield at Mosier
will average over a third, and in many
cases a half crop will be iu evidence.
Taking into consideration the high
price that apples will rule at this
rear, the farmers will tare very well.
Laat year's crop was so extremely
heavy that many of the orchards are
resting up this year as a result.
Will send you a few items to let
you know we are not all dead un here.
